SketchUp 2023 - Flip Along not in Context Menu?

Hi All - recently reinstalled SketchUp and maybe I’m crazy but I can’t access Flip along anymore. Any ideas? Current SketchUp version is 23.0.397

You’re not crazy, it now has its dedicated tool in the toolbars.

It’s a new tool - no longer available in Right click, but you’ll find it in the large tool bar.


You ought to read through the Release Notes to see what else you’ve missed.

Please update your forum profile. It’s clearly out of date.

ngl… putting a tool that’s been in the context menu for years into the toolbar is not all that impactful. Especially when we had mirror plugins already and it’s worked fine. Changing things for changing sake is dumb.

Yes it is. In this case the change was made based on numerous feeature requests by users. Sounds like you would prefer that the developers ignore feature requests.

FWIW, you can still set up keyboard shortcuts for Flip Along if you want. While you’re at it, set up a keyboard shortcut for the new Flip tool so you don’t have to go to the toolbar for it. The new Flip tool is much more powerful, though.

ok I came off a little hot on that one. Apologies. I guess I’m more of a “if its not broken, don’t fix it” kinda person. The built in toolbar tool is handy sure, and it’s a lot easier to know which way you’re mirroring things. The Hotkey map prevents you from having to move your mouse away from the object. Having the context menu is more functional for me specifically so if I’m the odd man out then I’ll shut up.

The new flip tool works on SketchUp for Web and iPad - where extensions are not supported.

That is very true, it does work the same as the new version.
But what annoys people is that it doesn’t work like the version we have been using for quite some time.
Simply changing things because you decided to redesign it to be a ‘better more inclusive’ option doesn’t mean it is better for everyone.
